- What is the efficiency of the P3D filter based on the filaments used?
- A detailed protocol
- The measurements conducted on different filaments: ABS, PLA, and PETG
- The P3D filtration efficiency
- The risks when changing filament
- Our conclusions and recommendations to protect yourselves from these toxic emissions
We focused on the most common filaments: ABS, PLA, PETG. In your opinion, which one is the most emissive? Find the answer in the study.
How effective is the P3D filter on toxic emissions?
“Emissions, dangers and Solutions! ” .Toxic and harmful to health emissions are produced by 3D printing. So we tested our P3D filter. The various measurements conducted, with and without filtration, reveal that our filtration system drastically reduces exposure to the toxic emissions generated by 3D printers
We confirmed the very high efficiency of the P3D filter, which is close to a minimum rate of 97.36%.To protect yourself from these nanoparticle emissions and to limit the risks, it is highly recommended that you use a tested and certified HEPA13 filter during FDM 3D printing.
Why is it important to use a tested and certified filter to limit the risks of toxic emissions?
Have you ever wondered which filament is the most emissive? We were surprised to see how many nanoparticles it emits! Discover the answer in our study!
